Maine Locations in Augusta and Lewiston
Purdue Global has Maine locations in Augusta and Lewiston. As a student, you can choose from a variety of degree programs designed to help you pursue and realize your career ambitions.† You can reach out online or in person for focused, practical support from advisors who are committed to your success—from admissions to graduation and beyond.
Both locations in Maine support a number of active student and alumni groups that regularly host outings and events to help you meet and network with Purdue Global classmates. Local resource centers offer a quiet place to study, computer access, and onsite academic services.
Why Choose Purdue Global in Maine?
As a result of an aging nursing workforce, several regions in Maine are facing a potential shortage of nurses by the year 2025.‡ Our Augusta location offers a prelicensure BSN program led by Director of Nursing Shannon Gauvin, an experienced nursing leader who was appointed to the Maine Board of Nursing in 2018. From day one, our curriculum will help you develop the skills to pursue a new career or advance in your current field.†
Our Students Succeed
I was able to complete a portfolio, which gave me 26 extra credits. By then, I was well on my way to obtaining my BSN.
